Did You Know These Pests Could Be Living in Your Home?

An insect infestation may not always be readily apparent. Some insects are adept at hiding their presence until the damage is already done. There are household pests that may be quietly squatting in your abode, and this infestation may necessitate assistance from a professional pest control company. Read on to learn more about these tricky bugs!

Clover Mites

These insects are plant feeders that have been known to invade homes. Since World War II, these pests have been invading homes in increasing numbers. This may be due to the increased use of lawn fertilizers. The soil nutrient levels and the proximity of the lawn to the house are factors that seem to affect whether the bugs will invade your home. Like other tiny insects, the clover mite is more of a nuisance that may contaminate food or accidentally invade your bed or bathroom.

House Centipedes

These creepy crawlers have 15 legs and can scurry extremely fast. These bugs are often found in kitchen cabinets and bathrooms. House centipedes feed on other household pests such as:

  • Bedbugs
  • Cockroaches
  • Silverfish
  • Spiders
  • Termites

These insects may seem beneficial, however, an infestation can quickly get out of control. These insects can contaminate food and invade your sleeping areas when populations skyrocket!

Carpet Beetle

The carpet beetle has more serious intentions than house centipedes or clover mites. Although the adults feed on pollen, the larvae love natural fibers and feast on clothing, furniture, and carpets. At only 3 mm in size, this insect can wreak havoc on your home and furnishings. If you find even just one of these bugs in your home, you should seek out professional assistance.

Silverfish

Silverfish are well known for the destructive feeding habits they have. These little silver-colored bugs are infamous for ruining paper, clothing, and wallpaper. These insects love to infest dark and damp areas that house paper or linen. Silverfish love to invade basements, attics, bathroom, laundry rooms, and kitchens.
